£32m Dundee sports hub hits the ground running
May 18 2018Regional Performance Centre for Sport within Caird Park.
Doubling as a training and competition venue for a range of sports the SportScotland backed centre includes a full size 3G indoor football pitch, eight court sports hall and conference suite.
Situated in close proximity to the A-listed Mains Castle the sports campus is intended to raise the profile of the city for sport by addressing shortfalls in its infrastructure provision.
In a statement the city architect wrote: “Externally the main building is intended to have a visualpresence on the site which deals with the large massing of the main block but is sensitive to its parkland setting. It will have a basecourse of dark grey brick to anchor it. The massing of the overall form is then composed of a palette of brick and cladding in muted tones.
“There will be use of coloured architectural elements to pick out the entrance to improve wayfinding and clarity of building use.”
Contractor Balfour Beatty has been appointed to deliver the project.
